Highly object to this confusing and incorrect term.
Fred Davis

AR may not be as immersive as VR, but to say that it’s not at all immersive is incorrect. The technologies are quite similar, and are lumped together for that reason, but when the distinction is explained properly, there’s no confusion. AR has the potential to be more useful in everyday applications than VR, so I’m not sure why you think VR is so much more important. As the Johnny Lee quote indicated, VR can be thought of as a subset of AR with blinders on (or “the lights turned off”), and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s actually implemented that way on some future devices designed to do both.
